This is the real classic African Flame Lily, living up to its name. The flowers open up with the petals folding back revealing broad, crimson-scarlet recurved frilled petals and golden yellow base. These climbing lilies are excellent as pot plants. It can grow upto 3m or more producing many flowers throughout the summer. The long lasting flowers makes it excellent for cut flower use. The tubers go dormant during autumn. Each single tuber after flowering dies, producing two tubers..

Pot culture. Pot in a mixture of 2 parts of garden soil, one part horticultural sand and one part rich humus compost. Place tuber horizontally and cover with 6 cm of soil. Keep the soil moist and place it in warm corner. Increase watering and move it to more sunlight once it begins to grow. Do not water and fertilize after flowering to allow the plant to go dormant.
